Rock 'n' Roll Star is a song by the English rock band Oasis. It is included in the European version of Rock Band, and is available for download in other regions.

Due to a very peculiar licensing issue, the song cannot be played in Rock Band 3 or Blitz. However, it can be played in other DLC-compatible games, including Rock Band 4.

Noel Gallagher told Q magazine October 2008 that this is his favorite Oasis track.

He explained: "The words and the sentiment to that song, that's what it's all about. I remember bringing it down to the lads in the rehearsal studio and rehearsing it until the first time we played it live. There was a hush after it, and it wasn't the hush of people going (bewildered) 'What was that all about?' It was (silenced awe). No one had ever said it in a song before. Tonight, I'm a rock 'n' roll star. There's six people watching you, right? You're anything but a rock 'n' roll star. But in your brain you are a rock 'n' roll star. When I hear that song by chance, on the radio or whatever, I just think, D'you know what, man? It's still got it for me. It's wide-eyed and wonderful."

The lyrics, as seen in a number of Noel Gallagher's songs, refer to his dreams and aspirations to become a rock star, and his hopes to move away from Manchester, the place of his upbringing. Gallagher said that "Rock 'n' Roll Star" was one of only three songs of which he wanted to say something: "I've pretty much summed up everything I wanted to say in 'Rock 'n' Roll Star,' 'Live Forever' and 'Cigarettes & Alcohol,' after that I'm repeating myself, but in a different way," said Gallagher.
